    Only you can decide what "good" sounds like!

    If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.

    If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.

    If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.

    I've wanted to get the top of my Traditional Pro redone as a GT since the day I bought it. Sooooooooooo classy.

    anything you can't do on a Les Paul is because you haven't practiced enough or you don't rock hard enough.

    As cool as the gold top itself is (especially with the cream WCR's), its the back that really stands out on this one. Its perfect, Gibson should make them like this instead of that light caramel color.

    that dark back is killer!!

    I was never big on goldies. I once got a great deal on a gt LTD EC400 and the color really grew on me.. I wish I had her back.. Here is my current goldilocks:
